“Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” was a hit at the box office, and many of its star actors — including actor Harry Potter — were seen as a welcome boost for the film.
But there was one actor who didn’t get a pass.
And the actor who wasn’t welcomed to the party?
“Harry Potter” stars Harry Potter and J.K. Rowling star in the “The Cursed Child,” a romantic comedy starring Percy Jackson as a boy who gets stuck in a magical world with a monster and is forced to help out his friends.
The film opened with a flurry of positive reviews, and the film’s star turned away the attention that the movie was getting, and even threatened to leave the movie production.
But he was wrong, and he was also wrong about his own sexuality.
The “Harry Potters” star was not welcomed to play the lead in “The Curse of the Cursed Claw,” a horror film, because he’s asexual, according to a report by The Hollywood Reporter.
“Percy Jackson is asexual,” the writer, actor, and director, Ryan Coogler, wrote in the story.
“His sexuality is a fiction that has been concocted to be a kind of magic trick to get him into a film.
This is a story about his character being asexual.”
The writer went on to explain that Jackson was not “happy with the script or the material, and didn’t want to do anything that would give a platform to a film that would make him look like a bigot.”
In a statement, Jackson said, “Percy is a talented actor, a fine writer, and a wonderful human being who is just one person with an unfortunate history of making the wrong choice about his sexual orientation.”
He added that “Harry’s” portrayal in “Harry P. Potters Cursed Child”—the film he has also directed — “is the first time I’ve had to defend myself publicly as being gay, because it is a very personal choice.”
But while Jackson said he was “not a bigot,” he said the “Harry” franchise was “a great place to be,” and the actor’s choice was a mistake.
“If a man can make a movie about a boy and be cast in it, it’s a great place,” he told EW.
“But to make a film about a man and then to make it look like he’s gay and then tell me that that’s wrong, it really, really bothers me.”
Jackson was referring to the “Cursed Child” script, which was written by J. K. Rowling and directed by Ron Howard.
According to the report, Rowling and Howard wrote the story as a way of “sending a message” to young actors who might not be comfortable playing male roles.
Jackson said in the statement that his sexuality was a “legitimate question” that “shouldn’t be politicized.”
He said that the film was “more than just a fun adventure for kids and adults,” and that it was about “an incredibly powerful friendship between Harry Potter, a boy with a magical ability, and Jekyll, a man who is gay.”
Jackson also said that he didn’t see his role as a “gift” to “a gay person” but to the LGBT community.
“It’s not about me,” he explained.
“It’s about me being honest.
It’s about Harry Potter as a family, and it’s about this powerful friendship.
It is about what it means to be human. “
We’re not here to make the best film or to win awards or to be in the best films.
It is about what it means to be human.
We’re just here to be friends, and that’s a very important part of it.”
Jackson, who is married to actor Jennifer Lawrence, was the first openly gay actor to star in a mainstream film, and his role was considered a step in the right direction.
“I know that this is not a perfect world, but I’m glad that my work was not politicized and that I was not cast to make Harry look like an embarrassment,” Jackson told EW, adding that “The Harry Potter” franchise is “not afraid to be honest.”
